"Old Jewish Cemetery in Josefov, Prague"
One of the most impressive sights in Prague is the Old Jewish cemetery in Josefov, the former Jewish ghetto. This cemetery was used from 1439 to 1787 and it is the oldest existing Jewish cemetery in Europe.
There are more than 100,000 Jews buried in this small plot, the graves being layered 12 deep in some places.. There are around 12,000 tombstones, crowded closely together with almost no grass between them.
